15 minutes of fame

Because I am super jaded about Kpop, I really don’t think Jung Yong Hwa (and by extension, CN Blue) is going to have any lasting power in the Kpop mainstream. At the moment they can still coast on Yong Hwa’s stint on “You’re Beautiful,” but that’s not going to last long unless Yong Hwa picks up another role asap. But if he does that, he’s going to compromise the musical side of him, which kind of puts CN Blue in the back seat again. Look at Kim Joon from T-Max. What the hell happened to him? And T-Max? Two hit wonder with “Almost Paradise” and then “Fight the Bad Feeling.”

CN Blue definitely has a unique sound and they deserve more success and recognition, but their management is half-assing them. Their first official Korean debut mini-album consists of only five songs, and two of them are recycled from their Japanese debut. It’s all about pushing out the product while it’s still hot. Who cares about musical integrity and gravitas? In another three, four months, like so many others before them, Jung Yong Hwa and CN Blue will be tiny, diminishing blips on everybody’s radars.

I am a personal Song Joong Ki cheerleader

Just like Ji Poong Ho was for Lee Haru ♡

It’s kinda gotten to the point where I will watch anything Song Joong Ki is in because I know he will do a great job with his character. From the sounds of it, I think I will be bored to tears by OB GYN, and I’m not sure why SJK took the role; I see him in lighter, more indie-style dramas like “Triple.” Only, next time he takes one of those, he’s gotta 1) play lead, 2) play a heavier/more intense character.

Oh boy, I have it bad.


These are probably the best scrambled eggs I ever cooked. Light and fluffy and mmm I love eggs.

In other news, the new place that I intern at is two blocks away from Kinokuniya. It’s fate.

Badass extraordinaire

Someone said that Jang Hyuk is like a Korean Johnny Depp. Yeah, I can see that.
Now, if only I liked Jang Hyuk more as an actor …
